Hi,

With reference to this (from my profile):


I am at a loss as to how a board I've posted in twice has a bigger bar and percentage than one I've posted to 101 times.
SMF must be using "the official government statistics calculator" to get results this odd. Wink


Best wishes,

Rick.

The DB is full of posts from spammers that have been "deleted", but apparently never purged.  I'm betting that's at least part of the issue.

Could it be the percentage of posts on that board by your good self?

I've never seen mention of delete vs purge with SMF. I always considered a deletion to be a SQL REMOVE statement.

This is the only board I've been involved in on SMF, but I know PHPBB2.x didn't actually delete the posts, just flag them as deleted and leave them in the DB.  (Either that or the one I ran was mis-configured.)
